New 2022 Honda Civic prototype revealed in saloon form

New 2022 Honda Civic prototype revealed in saloon form”

Though this is just a prototype, Honda says it is representative of the production auto that will arrive sometime early next year. While the company is technically calling it a "prototype", but going by the design, it'd be safe to assume that this is the production-ready model. The last generation Civic was maybe a tad overly fussy compared to its smooth and rounded predecessors, but now the 2022 Honda Civic Sedan has been revealed, all looks well in Honda's design department.

The prototype Honda Civic 2022 also stands on 19-inch black wheels which compliment the Solar Flare Pearl body colour of the sedan. Aside from the standard variants in the line-up, there will also be a performance-focused Civic Si as well as the high-performance Civic Type R.

That's why Honda revealed the new Civic on Twitch, a streaming and social media platform for video game players, Tuesday evening. This section integrates neatly with a pointed nose, so there's no gap above the grille like what was seen on the FC. The 2022 Honda Civic boasts a massive cosmetic upgrade with a lower and wider stance, low beltline, and clean and sophisticated detailing.

A lip spoiler has been built into the shape of the bootlid, while dual exhaust outlets and a faux, body-coloured "diffuser" trim round out the rear end appointments. A touchscreen will be on top of the dashboard and will feature a new infotainment system using tiles like the system in the Honda e, rather than the Garmin aftermarket unit that comes in the current vehicle. So there is a simple yet tasteful layout, highlighted by the full-width honeycomb mesh detailing that hides the AC vents. Speaking of which, dominating the dash would be a touchscreen infotainment system that is as large as 9-inches. Also, the shoulder line runs from the front fender to the taillights. The partly-exposed armrest storage in the FC gets a closed-off lid as a result. Honda also tilted the window controls on the doors upwards for a more ergonomic reach.

Honda claims the new Civic will offer an "even sportier, fun-to-drive new chassis, more powerful and fuel-efficient powertrains, multiple new Civic-first features and technologies, and further advances in active and passive safety features and performance". A new Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structure also makes this vehicle incredibly safe at the time of a collision, for both occupants and pedestrians. The instrument cluster will be fully digital as opposed to the mix of analogue and digital in the current model.
